Teen Remains in Coma after One Month
An Iowa teen has been in a medically-induced coma for nearly a month following a car crash.
Emma Kiefer, 17, of Lehigh, is involved in her community and now her loved ones want to give back to the teen who they say has given so much.
Friends said it's Kiefer's sense of humor and her bubbly loving personality.
"She's just really fun," said Kierra Eldridge, one of Kiefer's friends.
"She would just like do anything for anyone else," said Kennedy Gallentine, one of Kiefer's friends.
Macy Devries like so many others said there's been a void since Emma Kiefer was taken by helicopter to Blank Children's Hospital.
The crash happened on Oct. 27 at the intersection of Highway 50 and Highway 169. Authorities said another driver failed to stop at a stop sign, causing the crash.
Kiefer is in 4H, loves showing her rabbits, plays golf for her school Southeast Webster Grand and is a volunteer camp counselor.
"She's touched so many lives throughout the state," said Jori Lizer, a family friend.
Lizer is planning a benefit for the Kiefers to help pay for the medical bills.
"We're just all used to having them be a part of us and so we all want to give back," said Lizer.
The Nibbles for Emma Benefit is planned for Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Webster County Fairgrounds in Fort Dodge. There will be a free will donation dinner and silent and live auctions.
